Classification[ edit ] Retrolisthesis can be classified as a form of spondylolisthesissince spondylolisthesis is often defined in the literature as displacement in any direction.
The reason for my post is that I have had 3 cervical fusion surgeries since First it was C5 through T1, and after falling and landing face first inon cheekboneI had to have C fused.
Both of these were through the Front so they removed the initial plate and screws and replaced with a smaller one between C4 and 5. I was then rear ended which required fusion surgery in using the posterior approach using rods and screws for a "markedly unstable" C Rods cover C3 to C5.
I have been dealing with the pain and with a very understanding husband have been able to "live" where almost no one would know that I had "anything" wrong with me.
I have recently started have extreme pain up the left side of my neck and into the left side of the base of my scull. It is like someone stabbing me with a hot poker both inside my ear and up into my head. It stops me in my tracks and seems to hit without warning, but appears to happen whenever I move my head even slightly from looking a little downward to the side to straight ahead.
It is happening enough that people stop and stair when I suddenly stop as I find it impossible to ignore.

The last time I saw a doctor and he had a spect scan done in JanI was said to be stable with minimal retrolisthesis at C3 on C4 and anterolisthesis at T1 through T3. I am feeling like I should be talking to someone about the sudden change in the pain as well as what causes it, but at the same time, I feel like the doctors are stumped and figure there is nothing they can do and I am just going to have to deal with the pain.
Should this sudden change be something important enough to "bother" the doctors, or would it just be considered something to put up with because it will not get any better?
It has felt like I have been sitting on a motor boat with reverberations up and down the spine and legs. I just started Lyrica and today is the first day on the job that I wasn't totally distracted from these feelings.
I will continue this medication along with prayer and I have hope it will get better. Just wanted you to know there could be some help for you too.
Stay close to the Lord and he will give you the strength to get you through.

The doctor wanted to give my spinal cortisone injections which I refused. He gave me muscle relaxers and pain killers for the pain.The most common symptom of the lumbar and sacral areas, by far, is pain. In fact, back pain is one of the most prevalent symptoms in America today, second only to headache.

What is Retrolisthesis? This is a medical condition in which a vertebra in your spine becomes displaced and moves forward or backward. In most instances of vertebrae slippage it will involve a forward movement of an upper vertebra, which will slip toward your chest.5/5(26).
Retrolisthesis, or backwards slippage of a vertebra, is an uncommon joint dysfunction. A vertebra is a small bony disc that makes the vertebrae, a series of small bones that form the backbone.
Any method of spinographic interpretation which utilizes millimetric measurements from any set of preselected points is most likely to be faulty because structural asymmetry and minor anomaly is universal in all vertebrae. I recently had an x-ray of my cervical spine and the test results reported: There is reversal of normal cervical lordosis with disc space narrowing and equivocal retrolisthesis at C with some lateral spurring more on the right.
